Visontai,David
This book invites the reader on an exciting visual journey that shows with purpose the architectural elements that are often overlooked. These hidden details can only be discovered by careful observation and through the art of photography. An important element for creating beautiful photography is that of natural light. The creators of this book were aiming to show the chosen buildings in a specific contrast of light and dark, making the invisible become visible. This method of presenting the churches attempts to awaken the desire in the reader to discover these details for themselves, making it a spiritual experience. It contains text in English, as well as in Italian, German and Hungarian languages. 133pp.

Greenwood, Ernest
The writings which comprise my memoirs were started over twenty years ago when I was still painting. Verse can express, emotions of love, joy and sadness in a manner divorced from most painters' subject matter. This, I find, is especially so nowadays in the prevalence of the abstract - with most practitioners' work having many human verities absent - not only in Europe but world-wide. This change in thinking has been enormous and is one that is seen most clearly in the visual arts. Now that circumstances make painting impossible for me, writing has moved into first place. Even so, as with painting, progress has been slow. But writing is so very different from painting - so many thoughts and imaginative images, often distantly or subtly related, can imbue a poem with a lasting mystery, or a glimpse into a lovely insubstantial world. This volume completes my "Trilogy Chr(45)" "My Life", "My Painting" and finally "My Writing". Although they have emerged as separate books, the writing of Part III was essential to complete the narrative as I conceived it - there has been a great deal to think about, much to ponder over. 240pp.

Kedar, Mordechai
The Syrian regime, ruled by the Ba'th socialist party and headed by presidents from the 'Alawi minority, faces problems of legitimacy vis-a-vis its people, which it tackles through powerful security organizations and the state media. The government media machine exists to express the regime's viewpoint in both local and external spheres, and to promote acceptance of the legitimacy of Asad's presidency and government. The media also attempts to mobilize the masses to act in the service of the state by disseminating information which reflects Asad's position on current issues. The organs of the regime - army, party, security services, national and local authorities - are proclaimed as acting by order of the president. While personal commitment to the legitimacy of Hafiz al-Asad is the principal 'article of faith', this message is supported by complementary messages - Asad being true to the Moslem faith; Asad as historic leader; Asad as the focus of identity of all Syrian citizens; the 'crimes' of the Moslem Brotherhood, etc. - and vociferous political discourse. 302pp. N.B. 2 dents to rear board and rear D/J. Base of spine bumped.
